Dismount Database operation

The Dismount Database process dismounts a database in a storage group on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 mailbox server. You can run this only if the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service is running.


The Dismount Database operation supports Microsoft Exchange versions 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016.

The adapter request parameters may differ according to the Microsoft Exchange Server version.

For the list of all supported parameters, refer to the Dismount-Database cmdlet in the Microsoft Exchange documentation specific to your version.
